Jordan has launched its automated immigration clearance system at the country's flagship airport.

Queen Alia International Airport in Amman went live with the eGate project last month, which speeds up passenger processing by allowing people who sign up for the service to pass through immigration using a two-factor authentication solution consists of ID cards utilising RFID technology and biometric fingerprint verification.

The turnkey system has been designed, developed and implemented by UAE-based solutions provider Datel.

The project is currently open only to Jordanian nationals, but can be upgraded to include expatriates as well.

There are currently eight gates in operation at the airport, which are each expected to process passengers at an average rate of five to seven seconds per passenger.

Datel has also deployed the automated immigration clearance systems operating at the airports in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
